The Lido is your new local bookstore, tucked away in our little slice of heaven (where the big chains can’t touch us!).
If you feel like book-buying has gotten too corporate and impersonal these last few years, well… so do we. That’s why we built this place, to bring the magic back to the book-buying experience! While we can’t promise that we’ll always have the new-release book you’re after, we do promise that when you walk through our wide-open doors you’ll be treated like a person in need of a good read.Our friendly staff are scarily knowledgeable and have a broad range of reading experience, meaning we’ll always be able to point you towards something we think you’ll love.
We may only be one story tall, but we’re packed-to-bursting with stories to tell!
The Lido Book Club
But what if you don’t love it – great! Books are about learning, exploring, expressing and understanding yourself through a shared art. With that in mind, we run a monthly Lido Book Club where – for once – it doesn’t matter if you’ve read the book! We just want to talk about the thing that we love, swapping stories and recommendations, arguing over the finer points of literature and/or who took the last biscuit.
Come and join us, why don’t you!? The first Tuesday of every month!
